Hi - we are just moving from Boulder, CO to Portland with our 2 year old son. Boulder has a great program for age 2+ with climbing walls, zip lines, climbing nets, etc, and I am hoping that we can find something similar in the Portland area. Any gouge to share? Thanks.

I had a tough time finding anything with a structured program for my youngest when she was four in Portland. You had to be six at PRG and I forget how old at Clubsport. Things may have changed in the last two years, but then the only thing I could find for her was a climbing class at the Firstenburg Center in Vancouver. You had to be four though. It was a four day class (done weekly or as a camp in the summer) with bouldering, climbing and a slack line. She had a lot of fun.

 

My three do Crossfit Kids at Crossfit HEL in Portland and they have cargo nets set up and ropes and rope ladders to climb, but no climbing walls.

The Circuit Bouldering Gym on SW Macadam is super kid friendly. No rope ladders or anything like that, but you can certainly let your kid go pretty much everywhere there. I am not much of a boulderer, but when my daughter was between 4 weeks and 6 months old and I was on maternity leave, I went several times. I saw several small kids there with their parents.

 

It's a pretty cool place. Check it out.
